Shaping up and Losing Weight with a Killer Workout and Diet Plan
Getting in shape and having a great body is not as hard as you might think with the right workout and diet plan.
How fast can you lose weight and get in shape, and how tough is it going to be? These are the questions we all want to know when starting on an exercise and diet plan. The good news is it doesn’t take all that long and is not so tough either — as long as you’re clever and know what you’re doing.
No amount of exercise on its own is going to deliver anything like the results you’re after. Too many people begin an exercise routine at the gym or home, and after a short while end up disappointed and throw in the towel, because the weight just will not come off — so what’s the point?
What you put into your body is as important as what you’re doing to it, with cardio, weights and anything else, if not more so. You need a good nutrition plan and a solid workout. If you stick to that, you’ll soon see the pounds begin to melt away, revealing your fantastic figure beneath it. The key is working out how to do it, and getting the balance right between exercise and diet.
Creating Your Own Workout Programme
Before you hit the gym, you need to decide what your goals are. There’s little point blindly using various pieces of equipment and hoping it will all, somehow, work out. Before you even do that, you need to look at your current level of fitness and decide if you’re ready to jump right in or should start slowly. If you haven’t worked out in a while — or ever — it’s highly recommended that you have a chat with your doctor first, and get checked out to see if you’re in good enough condition to start exercising.
If you can work out, decide what parts of your body you want to shape: do you want to lose fat around your midsection and possibly arms too? How about building your biceps and pecs? Do you want to carve out your abs, or get so fit you could run a marathon, or just 10 or 5K? There are so many things you can do, and ways to do them. You need to carefully consider each part of the body and how your workouts will affect them.
Some people are lucky enough to afford a personal trainer at a gym who can work it all out for them, and put them through their paces while monitoring their progress — but not everyone is so fortunate. You can do it yourself anyway, and it’s not that hard: focus on different parts of the body on different days: chest and legs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, for example, and abs and biceps on Tuesdays and Thursdays, giving yourself rest days at the weekend.
Rest is just as important as working out, as it allows your body to recover, and grow muscle. You can intersperse these workouts with small bouts of cardio (HIIT, if you like), on the treadmill, bike, rowing machine, or by swimming or anything else that gets your heart pumping and into the fat-burning zone.
Working out Your Diet Plan
Deciding on what to eat so you get in shape and help your exercise regime is also something that takes a bit of work. Many of us are largely clueless not only about what kind of food to eat but how much. Looking at a packet’s nutritional information and trying to figure out how much protein, carbs and fats you should be taking in can end up giving little other than a pounding headache.
That’s why more people are turning to diet delivery plans to do the legwork for them. Ours, for instance, uses information about a person and takes into account their goals, to calculate their nutritional assessment. Then, we deliver the meals of their choice right to their door. This way, you’re getting the optimal amount of calories to sustain you and help you reach your weight-loss and muscle-building targets — plus, there’s no need for all that shopping, peering at labels and spending hours in the kitchen cooking it all up.
It all adds up to a delicious health and fitness programme you can get stuck right into.
